About this Event

The ultimate beginner's and beginner's+ Intro to Pottery course

This course is suitable for beginners, those who have some experience in pottery already via another course right up to intermediate level.

Over 6 weeks you will learn to throw basic shapes on the potter’s wheel, turn bases, make and attach handles as well as learning handbuilding techniques such as pinching, coiling and building with slabs.

For more advanced learners we will look at your experience on an individual level to work out a plan to help you achieve your goals and get to the next level be it on the wheel, handbuilding or a bit of both.

You will decorate your work using stained slips and techniques such as Sgraffito, the art of carving patterns onto the surface of the clay as well as coming back to glaze your work in week 6.

You will also learn the art of Nerikomi, working with stained porcelain to create amazing patterns in the clay and get a go on out exclusive mini-wheels designed by Small Ceramics!

This course teaches you a wide variety of basic pottery skills and then allows you to explore further the bits that you are interested in. If you want to spend most of the 6 weeks throwing on the wheel, you can do. If you want to take your handbuilding further, we will help you put together your own projects. Want to mix it up? You can!

The course runs on Saturdays 1.30-5.30pm and costs £395 per person inclusive of all materials and firings. Please note that we do provide teas/coffees and biscuits on this course.

This class is not suitable for pregnant women.

Cost: £395 inclusive of all materials and firings.  

Dates: March 12th, 19th, 26th, April 2nd, 9th 1.30-5.30pm + glazing on Saturday April 23rd 10am-1pm.

Covid-19: Please note that we have implemented new work practices to keep everyone safe. When you arrive, you will have to queue outside.
